The Municipal Chief Executive of Adenta in the Greater Accra Region, Daniel Alexander Nii-Noi Adumuah, says he will soon seek a court order to demolish buildings on waterways to prevent the perennial flooding in his jurisdiction.
The MCE in an interview with Accra based Citi FM said the demolishing exercise will prevent the flooding which has been a challenge for residents.
“We will seek legal help and remove those buildings because all these buildings do not have any permit because nobody will allow them to build in such areas. So why are people building without permits, we need to bring a bit of discipline into our system if the whole society is supposed to benefit,” he said.
He also stated that there will be drenching of key waterlogged areas to give water passage to prevent flooding with the onset of the rains. Parts of the capital including Kaneshie, Odwna, Adenta, Amasaman and others got flooded after few hours of thw downpour.
